+ * qemu: Allow control of ``qcow2`` metadata cache
+ In specific usecases such as when massive storage images are used it's

+ * secret: Relax XML schema for the ``usage`` name of a ``secret``
+ Various bits of documentation of how to use libvirt with RBD volumes used
+ an usage name which would not pass the XML validation. Relax the requirement
+ to make such XMLs valid.
* **Bug fixes**
+ * qemu: Fix logic bug in inactive snapshot deletion
+ This release fixes a bug introduced in ``libvirt-6.9`` where libvirt's
+ snapshot metadata would not be deleted on successful snapshot deletion.
+ * qemu: Fix VM's with ``<iotune>`` on an empty cdrom
+ Specifying ``<iotune>`` for an empty cdrom would prevent the VM from
+ starting as qemu doesn't accept the tuning for an empty drive. We now
+ postpone the setting of the parameters until a new media is inserted.
